Opera at Bonhams: Georgiana, A Secret History of our Time

Friends of Buxton International Festival and Bonhams present the first glimpse of a new pasticcio opera, Georgiana, A Secret History of our Time, due to receive its world premiere at Buxton Opera House at next year’s 40th Anniversary Festival.

Based on the extraordinary life of Georgiana Cavendish, 5th Duchess of Devonshire, a Georgian socialite, style icon, author and activist, the evening will include arias, duets and a trio performed against a backdrop of Old Master Paintings from the 5 December auction. A champagne reception will be followed by music from 18th century composers Mozart, Storace, Martin y Soler and Thomas Linley featuring new lyrics and an introduction by members of the creative team.
